Sunday, June 7, 6.30 PM, Round 4, Campbelltown Stadium, Gold Coast Titans take on Wests Tigers NRL Match Preview
Gold Coast Titans are still hunting a win to kick off their season in chase of the 2020 premiership. It would seem from past games they are turning up to the games but lacking a combination of things in the most critical of areas. So far this season from three games they have scored a total of 18 points, averaging six points a game. They have leaked a total of 106 points with 88 points being unanswered. On paper this looks like it’s going to be all the West Tigers but looks can be deceiving.
